Wilkinson on the double for Ballinderry

TWO first-half goals from Raymond Wilkinson, the first of them after just 43 seconds, guided Ballinderry to their 12th Derry SFC title yesterday.

Playing a direct game towards Enda Muldoon at full-forward, the pre-match favourites found the net twice before the interval to lead 2-2 to 0-3 against first-time finalists Kilrea.

In a drab encounter, Kilrea never looked like getting the goal they needed and Ballinderry’s midfield, embossed by Muldoon’s presence after the break, gave them a platform for a comfortable win.

Scorers for Ballinderry: R Wilkinson 2-0, C Gilligan 0-4 (2fs), M Harney 0-1.

Scorers for Kilrea: C Kielt (f), James Kielt (f), J Donaghy (f), E McAleese, T Rafferty, B Quigg 0-1 each.
